The Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder Series
by Jo Nesbo (Author) Mike Lowery (Illustrator) Tara Chace (Translator)
Doctor Proctor, Nilly, and his new friend Lisa must go to great lengths to protect the invention and keep it out of the hands of their neighbors, who try to use the powder for evil purposes. This witty, magical series captures the spirit of Roald Dahl and the zany humour of Andy Griffiths, while Mike Lowery's cheerful illustrations are reminiscent of Dav Pilkey's 'Captain Underpants' cartoons. Even the most reluctant of young readers will be engrossed in this wacky comedy adventure series.
